“As a result of the illegal closure of the Lachin Corridor, the Armenians of Nagorno-Karabakh have been under siege for 5 months and are living in conditions of a humanitarian crisis.
Sending an international fact-finding mission to Nagorno-Karabakh and the Lachin Corridor is a necessity,” Pashinyan said.
